Teaser Tuesdays #72

Teaser Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by Should Be Reading.

• Grab your current read
• Open to a random page
• Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
• Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!
My Teasers:
Quote #1:
"Never do anything by halves if you want to get away with it. Be outrageous. Go the whole hog. Make sure everything you do is so completely crazy it's unbelievable...”  

Quote #2
“So Matilda’s strong young mind continued to grow, nurtured by the voices of all those authors who had sent their books out into the world like ships on the sea. These books gave Matilda a hopeful and comforting message: You are not alone.”

Quote #3
"With frightening suddenness he now began ripping the pages out of the book in handfuls and throwing them in the waste-paper basket.
Matilda froze in horror."

Matilda by Roald Dahl

Just finished this audio and has become a new favorite. I can't believe it took me this long to read (or listen) this book. The movie was one of my favorites when I was younger. I will be posting an audiobook and movie review later on in the day.


  1. My daughter loves Roald Dahl. Thanks for those teasers. We haven't read this one yet.

    1. Gosh, you should! Maybe your and/or your daughter will relate to Matilda.

  2. Oh nice teases! I remember reading this one as a kid!

    Here's my Tuesday post

    Have a GREAT day!

  3. Oh I love Matilda!!!!! That is one the first books (along with Heidi lol) that I always recommend to kids!
    I also thought the movie was done very well, it still is one of my daughter's favorite movies!

  4. Love it <3 I'm hoping to read this one with my kiddos sometime this year :)

  5. Great book! Thanks for sharing and reminding me of this's MY TUESDAY POST

  6. Awesome :)

  7. Dahl is such a fantastic writer! I love the quotations.

  8. I've always heard great things about this author but have never read any of his books. I'll be sure to remedy that as my granddaughter gets older (if not sooner!)
    My Teaser is from THINGS WE SET ON FIRE.

  9. It has been forever since I read a Roald Dahl book! Great teasers!

    Thanx for visiting my TT
